Hi Everyone!!
Yes, I know I have been MIA as usual.
It’s been crazy….
I’ve been out and about, here and there.
I can’t even complain though
What have you been up to?
I am soooo happy with the weather at the moment. Granted it was raining cats and dogs last week but at least it was still quite bright
Anyways, let me get along with blogging. It’s definitely been a while!

Congrats to comedian, Julius Agwu, he married his heartthrob of my years, Ibiere Maclayton in a ceremony in Port Harcount last week.
Julius and IB have been dating for quite a while but according to him, her Dad insisted that she completes her undergrad, NYSC and masters before the marriage. Now that she has graduated from her masters in Oil and Gas Engineering from Robert Gordon University, Scotland, the couple decided it was the right time. CONGRATS!! I love Julius, he’s so funny with an amazing sense of style as well!
According to Julius, “We are going to seven countries (for our honeymoon). We intend to go to Italy, Bahamas, Paris, Miami and other places.”

Check out Destiny’s Child alum, Kelly Rowland rocking a Kosibah outfit for a photoshoot. Mr Osunkoya is sooo talented and humble. Wish him every success! Kelly looks fab!

Here is the new video for Banky W’s song ‘Capable’. What do you think?

One of my fav Nigerian contemporary gospel artistes has released her first video, ‘Almighty God’. Love the song! Gogo was on the cover of True Love WA some months ago. I wish her continued success!
Almighty God

Short and sweet. That’s it for today. Ciao

    Congrats to Julius Agwu
    Kosibah is definitely doing my wedding dress, he’s so talented….

    I love Banky, but I’m not feeling that video too, P-Squared has set my standards for naija videos on a pedestal and Mr W didn’t deliver, I love the song tho

    Just came across your blog, I like it! You cover a lot of stuff other people aren’t… and Kelly looks beautiful in that dress!! Thanks for sharing the pics. Since it looks like you’re in the know with style and culture, I thought I’d let you know about Toyota’s If Looks Could Kill. I work with them, so I’m excited to spread awareness of these thrilling, new webisodes that follow an aspiring fashion designer, Bianca, who’s involved in international espionage by night. If you’re familiar with the BMW shorts from a couple of years ago (Guy Ritchie, Madonna), these webisodes definitely have a similar production level.


    Interactive: Toyota has gone one step further, the viewer can interact with Bianca to help her unravel the mystery that has suddenly become her life. I really enjoy the multiple levels; it adds a dimension of reality to the story and builds a unique relationship between the main character and viewer.

    Launch party: We have our official launch party tonight @ Eyebeam in NYC— with performances by Ashanti, Janelle Monae and Anthony Hamilton. Tyra Banks is also on the guest list!

    I’d really love your take on the first episode—Haute Pursuit—and discuss more as the other episodes roll-out. Myself, I’m still trying to figure out who the bad guy is—the ex, the boyfriend, the boss? Or maybe it’s Nana? lol

    Again, would love your take because bloggers like yourself definitely have a good eye about what’s cool, hot and current. I would have contacted you via email but I didn’t know which the best way to reach you was. I hope I didn’t overstep my bounds by directly contacting you.

    Don’t be shy!

    Julius A’s wife looks so vibrant…guess its the wedding day glow. Congrats to them!

    Is it me or does Kelly R. look sooo much better ever since she left Destiny’s Child? I’ve always believed that Beyonce’s mom, their stylist, deliberately made the other girls look terrible and hooked up Beyonce. Every time I see Kelly R. these days, she looks fantastic.

    Thanks Bella for featuring Kelly Rowland in my gown. I have to admit, it’s not my favorite image of that dress (I had no say in the styling or direction), but hey…it’s Kelly Rowland!I do appreciate your continuous support.
